Position Summary

The Pickup Check-in Team powers the Walmart Pickup Experience Platform. Once a shopper places an online order and receives a confirmation that it’s ready for pickup, the customer uses the Walmart app to “check-in” when they are about to go to the store. The “check-in” status then signals store employees to begin assembling items in the customer’s order. The customer parks his car and walks to store up to the Pickup desk, scans the barcode on his phone and then picks up his Order.

As part of the Pickup Check-in Team, the backend engineer will be contributing to the platform building new features and capabilities that scale for our millions of customers. The role includes developing new web services, building real time data pipelines and implementing machine learning models that will help reduce the wait time and provide a great customer experience.
